by Inlander Staff & r & & r & Dancers on Display & r & OK, so some Bay Area choreographer's dances will be performed this weekend at CV. What's the big deal? Well, for one thing, if you haven't witnessed all the bells and whistles at what they're calling the Valley Performing Arts Center at Central Valley High School, then you're missing one of the area's best theatrical spaces. Even better, Amy Seiwart has received commissions for dances both classical and contemporary from the Sacramento Ballet and American Repertory Ballet -- and Ballet Spokane will be performing her Lithium Dreams right there in Spokane Valley. In addition, the local dance troupe will present Janet Wilder's choreography in her version of Alice in Wonderland and Elements. Performances are on Friday at 8 pm and on Saturday and Sunday at 2 pm. Tickets: $10. Call 325-SEAT.





Poetry Found & r & What if you didn't have to seek out poetry in some musty tome? What if the poetry came directly to you at random moments? A half-dozen local poets have plans to write stanzas on their own keepsake objects, then scatter them in plain sight around downtown and lower South Hill. So be on the lookout for poetic nuggets scrawled on note cards, baseballs, flying discs -- whatever can be inscribed with verse and left lying around on sidewalks or in coffeehouses. Think of it as urban graffiti with added mobility and metaphors, minus the spray paint and gang symbols. If you find some rhymes on, say, a rock, call Steve at 499-8359.





Can't Wait? & r & If you're aching for our local farmers' markets to open, you can get a fix on the next three Fridays (April 21, April 28 and May 5), from 10 am-2 pm, at 35 W. Main Ave. The Community Building is hosting these market days, which feature organic ice cream, organic artisan breads by Arabesque Breads, Italian country fare from the Barn on Trezzi Farm, Fussy Hen's eggs and notions, Honey by Lars Neises, Ly Lo Vu's Laotian fare and sewing, Van Stone's dried flowers and Anna's Herbs.





Canned Tuna & r & According to our October 2003 Ten-Year retrospective, one of the best-remembered local theater productions involved Bill Marlowe and Michael Weaver in Greater Tuna, the wack-job comedy about the denizens of a dusty Texas town. Well, they're going to be back at it. Actors Rep has revised its season opener: Starting Aug. 25, Weaver and Marlowe will alternate performances of Greater Tuna and its sequel, A Tuna Christmas, in SFCC's 600-seat Music Auditorium. Didi Snavely will be there selling his used guns and ammo -- because if Didi cain't kill it, it's immortal.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
